OT- Small Inverter Generator Deal @ HD

Posted a picture in the “what are you buying” thread but saw where it is only on sale for 12 hours. I figured someone else might be interested in the deal. Not bad for $250 off. 



Just trying to help yall spend some 💰💰😁.

    I bought that same one a few years ago from Home Despot.  Still works great!

    About one fifth what I paid for a Honda at Home Depot a few weeks ago. For $189 I would have made a different decision!

    Keep in mind that Honda has twice the capacity.

    Keep an eye out around black Friday.  Few years ago, got the Sportsman dual-fuel 4000-3500 watt for $249, never been run on anything but propane and is great!

    Problem with gasoline generators is, if you leave 3 drops of gas in them, they won't start 9 months later, when you need them.

    Helps to run the carb dry....and the fuel tank if possible.

    Very true, and completely needless with propane.  Additionally, the storage life of propane is nearly infinite, compared to a few months with gasoline, even stabilized.

    For those living in severe weather country, a multi-hundred gallon propane tank in the yard would take much of the inconvenience out of power outages, storm surge, not so much...

    Good luck to all in the path of the storm.

    Oof, they say don’t use them above 3k ft elevation

    I converted my Honda EU2000i to be able to use propane a couple years ago for the simple reason that propane doesn't "go stale".

    What!?  Seriously?  Glad you pointed that out.

    Ordered.  I'm around 700-800ft of elevation.  My 3500W can rest every weekend as 1000W is plenty for what I am using it for.
    Thanks for the heads up.

    Actually, if you contact the MFG. and let them know the altitude at which you'll be running it, they should be able to send you a different fuel jet, which is about a 5 minute job to swap.  Keep the original jet and be sure to put it back in if you drop to lower elevation.  Otherwise, it will run too lean and could seize.

    Also good to know if you are a pilot. Or wish you knew if you were a pilot.

    I'm interested in having my portable generator converted to propane. 

    Does anyone know of a company in Metro Atlanta that can convert a Honda EU7000IS gasoline generator to propane-fueled?
